I have vivid memories of him in a made-for-TV movie called The Littlest Angel, where he played a Biblical era shepherd who goes to heaven and trains to be an angel. Fred Gwynne and Tony Randall were in it, too. I think that this was a Christmas perennial for a few years before being buried mercifully and never seen again.
I remember that one too. If I died and Fred Gwynne (a.k.a. Herman Munster) was assigned to mentor me, I'd assume I'd gone to hell!
Anyone remember the three part episode where Buffy and Jody were lost in Mexico?
Apparently it was Spain, according to this episode guide
. The episode title, "Lost in Spain," naturally makes me think of Lost in Space, which leads me to imagine that show with Buffy & Jody playing Will & Penny and Sebastian Cabot as Dr. Smith. Mr. French and the robot together would be hilarious!
I wonder if today's quest to find out where babies come from caused a lot of questions from the kid viewers back in the day?
I love how Mr. French was so appalled by the very mention of the subject and complained to Uncle Beel that B&J had brought it up "in front of English ladies" [Miss Faversham and someone else]. Mr. French was absolutely determined to squelch any conversation about it. "I don't think we can shut them up," said Uncle Beel, to which Mr. French replied, "We can try, sir."
I noticed that the girl who told them about the stork was played by Pamelyn Ferdin
. Good lord, was there any 1960s-70s era show that she wasn't
in? Family Affair, The Flying Nun, The Odd Couple, Brady Bunch, Star Trek... not to mention voicing Lucy in the Peanuts specials.
